Introducing the cake o' birthday for Mister Jack...
Homemade fondant, 9+ different dye colors, 3 batches of cake, and unmentionable amount of hours spent later here is what I came up with for Jack's bday cake.
It didn't turn out quite like I had imagined in my head, but it'll do donkey it'll do (yeah I quote Shrek quoting Babe).
Jack loved it and that is all that matters.
He knew that he got the whole house part to himself...but after a couple attempts to break through the fondant, he gave the house to Cole and settled for a normal piece of cake.
On a much bigger side note-- today three years ago our little man Jack came into this world. It was the easiest labor I have had. He seemed in a rush to get here...and he hasn't stopped rushing since. Here are some things we love about Jack...
his impish grin
his 90 (or so) different facial expressions
"yes or no?"
how much he loves daddy
how hard he tries to be like Cole
how much he loves Case
drawing on his back
listening to him speak..."pwoppers (ploppers), pway (play), wunch (lunch)"
plays on his own
how easily he says "thank you"
how much more easily he says "i love you mommy"
So corny, but time really does fly.
party picture maybe tomorrow
